THE STORY BEHIND ELDERBERRY D3FENSE™
Components of this blend have been cherished for ages…literally. During the Middle Ages, elderberry was considered a Holy Tree. People revered its capacity to “restore good health” and aid longevity.
Indigenous people in North America also valued the elderberry for its many benefits. Its berries and flowers were used for medicine and dyes, while the larger stems were fashioned into whistles, flutes and clapper sticks. This would explain one of its nicknames, Tree of Music. Elderberry was also highly prized by the Cahuilla Indians of Southern California, who harvested the fruit in summer months then dried and cooked it into a rich sauce.
Elderberry naturally contains vitamin C. It also possesses the alkaloids hydrocyanic acid and sambucine. Pro tip: Cook the fruit to degrade these compounds or you might feel sick. Once processed, it’s a boon for your immune system.
